Smart displays powered byGoogle Assistant haven’t been here for long, and theJBL Link View has been on the market for less than two months, but that hasn’t stopped JBL and several other retailers from marking it down $50 to $199.95.
This smart display features an 8-inch touchscreen, stereo front-facing speakers with JBL’s excellent sound, and IPX4 splash resistance, so you don’t have to worry about keeping it on your kitchen counters near the sink, and spill-able, splash-able ingredients. Like theLenovo Smart Display, the Link View has a Privacy Switch to shutter the camera and mute the mic, and it has the best sound we’ve heard from a smart display yet. If you’ve been wanting to see what a smart display can do in your home —which is a lot — now is a pretty good time to give it a try. Google might be unveiling their own smart display at theirGoogle Pixel 3 event in the next couple of weeks, but the JBL will probably sound better than the hinted Google Home Hub.
You can find the JBL View for $200 at the following retailers:
